We went in for a little emergency ultrasound this week, and to our surprise and delight, the baby is bigger and totally healthy. We both closed our eyes when the ultrasound technician took the magic wand to my abdomen, but when she said, "There it is! Looking good," we let out a sign of relief and spent about ten minutes peeking into the life of our child. Even seeing it wiggle and punch still didn't make it quite real. When she zoomed in on the baby's face, it was opening and closing its mouth and that's when I realized--there's our kid.
The baby is lodged in quite nicely and moves everything but it's lower body. So, we waited and waited for a view to see if we're having an Ella Jane or a Clive Baxter (we just can't think of any boy names), but the baby just wouldn't budge. So, because it already likes yoga, we'll probably have to name it something new-agey like Sunbeam or Banjo.
So, I guess we will have to wait four more weeks to find out what we are having. Until then we are focusing on who we are having. It's amazing to think that this baby already has a personality uniquely given by God and we are patiently waiting to find out what Ella Jane or Norman Philbert will be like! We will post some ultrasound pictures as soon as we scan them.
